Okay, so I love my food blog, and it’s coming up on its one year anniversary.
But I’ve been reluctant to post in it lately (partly from not wanting to write up the terrible University City Dining Days restaurant and partly because I just don’t like the template anymore – it’s all dark and oppressive, but it was the best of the templates I saw). (ETA: have since ported the missing months from my private journal over to this one – still looking for a site redesign as of 11/25/09)
I crave to have my own identity – my own, individually designed, style which is mine all mine.
And just as I was thinking that, one of the bloggers I read announced that she had just gotten her site professionally redesigned by nifty people. And I pined… so I shot them an email talking about what I wanted, and they sent me back their price list. And OMG – I am not paying $1200 to make my site look better. Because I am so much less professional than she.
Especially not when I have friends. Friends who are good at design and (in some cases) under employed.
So I propose to pay $300 for a quick, pretty WordPress template. I promise I’m easy to please.
So here’s the deal. You say you want to do the job. I give you specifics and 2 weeks to produce a rough draft. If there is a rough draft (whether I like it or not – done is good), I will pay you $50. If there is no rough draft, then I’ll give two weeks to the next person who responded. And then you have a month for a final draft – at which point I will give you $250.
If you are interested, let me know.
ETA: Is that a fair offer? Let me know, if I am way out of line.
